Another flight out of Moffett on a transport in our Pilatus. This time because of the weather we took off from 14R instead of the the usual 32L which resulted in a great video of the entire base, including the C-141, the short haul experimental aircraft, the wind tunnels and Hanger 1.

I'm pretty sure we must have irritated the VIP's from google in the Falcon 900 and Gulfstream seen taxiing behind us because they had to hold due to our lifeguard status

The Falcon was headed for point unknown and its tail is blocked on flight aware and the G which loaded up a large number of kids was heading for SLC.

That's REMSA... and the MGM Grand or Mountaineer in the background🤗

Edit: not sure what the current name is.

Yeah don't get me started on REMSA. Unless we have a patient we have to load all of our gear into a Taxi to get to the hospital. Without a patient they refuse to pick us up. we are a mobile PICU and travel with about 500 lbs of gear so trying to shoehorn all that stuff into a cab when its snowing brings a whole new meaning to 'this sucks". For some reason this time they picked us up

HAHA small world, when I was a kid we would stay there and it was the MGM. Its now the Grand Sierra Resort

Oh man, I grew up in the SF Bay Area. When I was a kid my Dad would take me to see the Blue Angels air show at Moffett Field.

For the record I no longer work for them, or Careflight.(gulp)
Hope you got to play golf out back of the casino.


And thanks for that video.
